5 perfect gifts for couch potatoes

Relax ...

1. Chill Sack Beanbag Chair ($380)

A person could get lost in a beanbag chair that's 8 feet across. So add a friend — or two — and sink in. The filling is shredded memory foam, keeping the chair at a weight that won't buckle the floorboards. Buy it at Amazon.

2. Ergonomic Couch Bowl ($35 for two)

Fill your next bowl of Froot Loops right to the top. This handmade ceramic bowl is designed to be held in one hand, with an indented base and thumb notch to improve grip. Buy it at Uncommon Goods.

3. Nucleus Arcade Coffee Table ($4,580)

With the power off, it looks like a glass coffee table. But a panel with dual controls slides out on the sofa side, and 100 pre-installed classic arcade games can be played on the built-in display screen. Buy it at Surface Tension.

4. Fuggit One Love Socks ($60)

There's no better footwear for a March Madness marathon than crocheted slippers that can pass for retro sneakers. The rubber soles are a recent addition, so now you can even wear them for a deli run. Buy it at Fuggit.

5. Cinera Video Headset ($799)

Shut out the rest of the world with a headset that delivers IMAX-like immersion in your favorite programming. It can be held to your face by an articulated metal arm or strapped on with a $49 head mount. Buy it at Cinera.
